1. Social by Heinz Beck

While Dubai has yet to win a Michelin Star for its dining (something tells us it won’t be long before this changes), this fact hasn’t stopped the city’s developers from courting chefs who have developed Michelin star restaurants to set up shop in their glamorous metropolis.

Heinz Beck is among the most acclaimed of those who have answered the call, as he is responsible for Rome’s La Pergola, an outstanding Italian joint which garnered a full three stars, the highest ranking possible in the Michelin guide.

While Social isn’t as buttoned-up of an establishment as La Pergola, its Mediterranean-casual dishes will still put on a show in your mouth. From spaghetti with zucchini and lobster to grilled tuna with red onions and fennel, you’ll find yourself eating the way Italians do at every meal – slowly, as you won’t want this fleeting experience to end.

2. Pierchic


There’s nothing like waterfront dining when it comes to adding a romantic dimension to one’s meal. In Dubai, Pierchic gets this formula perfect, as it pairs an over-water setting with some of the world’s best seafood.

Views of the seven-star Burj Al Arab Jumeirah and other Dubai hotels will be the ideal companion to dishes like Chilean sea bass and Alaskan king crab, so if you and your partner love seafood, put in a reservation at the earliest opportunity so you won’t miss a chance to dine here during your stay.

3. At.mosphere Burj Khalifa
